If you are worried about the well-being of a loved one who may be reaching the stage of needing long-term care but is reluctant to move away from their own home, Elder’s live-in care service can provide the solution you need. A live-in carer can move into your relative’s home with them and provide the 24/7 care and support they need.
Why is live-in care preferable to moving into residential care in Vauxhall?
Live-in care can give you complete peace of mind because you will know that your loved one is benefiting from one to one care and will be safe and well looked after day and night.
This type of care also offers companionship and care that is specifically tailored to the individual needs of your loved one, whereas in a care home they would have to fit in with the diverse requirements of other residents.
Many elderly people become upset in situations of change and moving away from the home and community they love can be traumatic. Live-in care means that they can continue to live life as they wish with the support of a carer to help them.
If they visit friends or neighbours in the locality or perhaps like to spend a little time at the South Lambeth Library, the carer will support them in this and in continuing any hobbies that they enjoy.
Elder has live-in carers throughout London in areas such as Lambeth, Clapham and Stockwell who can supply the care your loved one needs, whether this is simple companionship or the complex care that is needed by people living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, all in the comfort of their own home. With Elder, you can be assured that they will enjoy the best possible standard of care from highly trained and experienced carers.
What does live-in care from Elder involve?
Your loved one’s individual needs will be documented in a unique care plan that will also detail the way they like to live. Using this, their live-in carer will do whatever is needed to keep them healthy, safe and happy.
Our carers will carry out domestic tasks such as shopping, cooking or cleaning, depending on what is needed. They will also ensure that your loved one’s personal care needs are met by helping with washing, dressing and other daily activities.
If your elderly relative needs to be escorted to an appointment, for example at the Riverside Medical Centre or needs their medication collected from a local service such as the Medirex Pharmacy, their live-in carer will also ensure that this is done.
What are the key benefits of live-in care in Vauxhall?
Although your elderly loved one may now need long-term care, this should not affect their ability to get out and about, meeting friends and enjoying their community. This area of London offers many local activities and places for elderly people to visit.
Your loved one may enjoy short walks in the lavender garden in Vauxhall Park or attend one of the regular events in Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. Tate Britain is close by, just across the bridge, representing another interesting place for your loved one to visit in the company of their live-in carer.
Support from Elder’s live-in care service will enable your elderly relative to safely make the most of all their community has to offer and to remain as active and healthy as they can.
How can Elder’s live-in care service enhance my elderly relative’s life?
It has long been recognised that people are likely to remain more physically active in their own home than they would if they went into a care home. There is more to do around the house and garden, and short walks around their neighbourhood will keep them more mobile. You can be sure that they will be safe with a live-in carer to accompany them, negating any concerns about your loved one going out alone.
If your loved one is a pet owner, their carer will ensure that their pets are fed and looked after if this is becoming difficult. This means that they can continue to reap the benefits of pet ownership without the difficulties of caring for a cat or dog.
Elderly people who live alone often complain that they are lonely and sometimes this is the major reason for moving into a care home. With a live-in carer to provide the companionship they need, your loved one will be able to enjoy all the benefits of remaining in their own home, surrounded by their treasured possessions and memories.
Elder’s carers are paid over usual industry rates, ensuring that we are able to recruit and retain the best and most highly experienced carers.
What is the cost of live-in care in Vauxhall?
The live-in care service that Elder provides throughout the UK costs £849 per week.
Plus, you won’t pay more for more acute needs, such as Alzheimer’s care.
This is a flat rate, and there are no hidden costs, meaning that it is as much as thirty percent less than the cost of a place in a care home.
